Memory Stone

A strange find. He rubs it against his uniform trousers, holds it to the scouring sun. Sparks like daylight stars flare against blue desert sky. Moorland granite ticking away the years, decaying, evoking memories. A peat-brown stream, a girl, skirt above her knees, mouth bruised, eyes drowning.
